Has anyone heard it yet? I've got the following information (only the importend difeerent topics)
* same internal sounds as WK8 (1019 sounds in 16Mb), but with 16 sounds in 8Mb extra from the Realpiano PRO2
* It has the the new Damper Physical Model
* 64 new performances
* internal styles are polished up / new
* internal RASS styles
* new sequencer functions: Autostore, direct play of midifiles from disk, combitble with DOC, Diskklavier, Piano Disk and *.KAR files
* Sample RAM supports the loading of stereo samples (!)
* 1650 songs on the internal HardDisk (WK8 had 200 songs, 192 styles and 65 MB of new PCM samples)
* Standard Video and Vocal Processor
* SCSI interface support (I thought not included though); OS supports copying/backup your HD through the SCSI. Also OS supports ZIP 250 and JAZZ drives.
* 3d and BASS boost. Maybee the same on the WK8? I don't know
So, what do you think of it? It shall be put on the market for the same price as the WK8 (had). A true runner up I believe.
I am curious. Should I go for WK8SE, buy me a cheaper WK6 Powerstation II or go nuts with a new Equinox with PRO2 Extension! (note; equinox PRO kit is the same I guess as the 8Mb new sounds in the WK8SE!)
